The first season of Bryan Fuller’s Hannibal wasn’t just one of the best new series last year, it was one of the best series on the small-screen, period. Although some were not initially taken with the idea of Thomas Harris’ 'Red Dragon' being adapted for network television, it was clear from the very first serving that this was something special and it's almost time to continue the unique, compelling and oddly beautiful take on the iconic villain.
Hannibal is great, and not in that way that pushes viewers to explain why a show is a guilty pleasure. Carefully crafted and skillfully shot, the show is thrilling and horrifying, and the new look at Season 2 looks as if it will inspire many of those same adjectives, and hopefully a few more eyeballs.
The return of NBC’s Hannibal was already highly anticipated with the drama not only making the list of last year’s best new shows but also the list of the best shows, period. And the anticipation for Season 2 only grows with each eerie trailer or rad casting announcement. Bryan Fuller knows how to populate a series. Of course, if you watched the first season, well, you already knew that.
Last year, NBC’s drama Hannibal closed out its freshman season on a note that was so horrifying—and so well scripted—I wasn’t sure how the show would move forward into Season 2. Nonetheless, if you’ve been dying to see what direction the characters are headed in, you’re in luck. On Sunday, NBC released our first look at Hannibal new season, which will begin airing on the network this spring.

The network’s latest project is a miniseries called Hannibal that currently has Halle Berry on board as an executive producer. No, we’re not talking about the tidy cannibal that’s into chianti and human flesh. We’re talking about the ancient African general who forged alliances and fought ferocious battles.
The crime procedural and television go together like peanut butter and jelly, or green eggs and ham. Or, like a serial killer and a jail cell — which is probably why they’re so darn popular. For over fifty years, the crime procedural has dominated television: from Dragnet to Columbo, 21 Jump Street to Law & Order and beyond — all of these iconic procedural dramas made the case for, and canonized, the methodology behind the madness, now and forevermore. In fact, crime procedurals are the number one US television export. We seem to really love them, huh?
